Amaliya Preobrazhensky lives with her mother in a tiny apartment. They don’t have much except each other, but that’s all right. Every day, God provides.
When Amaliya’s father, who hasn’t been around since before she was born, returns and a custody battle begins, it’s hard for her to understand. Can a man she’s never met really take her away from her beloved mother? Why would God let such a thing happen?
Sensitivity Warning: this novella features mistreatment of characters based upon their ethnicity (Russian) and other prejudices (unmarried mother). Though good triumphs in the end, it is not before a mighty struggle.
